Horrible Science: Microscopic Monsters

What’s even smaller than your teacher’s brain? A mite. A germ. A vicious mini monster! It’s time to take a walk on the wild side of life – in the terribly tiny microscopic world. It’s a place of violence and sudden death! A place of beastly swarming bacteria! A place of monsters! Take a look through the microscope and dare to discover:
  • which creature lays its eggs between your toes
  • how germs make dead bodies explode
  • how to perform a sickening slug experiment
  • what hidden horrors live inside your house
  • why your chicken dinner really tastes so yummy
  • which beastly booklice feed on old books like this
  • what tortuous terrors lurk down your toilet

Why have boring science when you can have Horrible Science? It’s monstrously exciting!

    This book is great. It is currently the only Horrible Science book I have had, but it is great and interesting. It tells you a lot and illustrations are nice, too. It tells you about diseases and parasites. But even if it sounds gross, it is actually quite interesting and informative.
